Unfortunate Word Choice

Now I saw the teaser on Drudge, so made sure that it wasn't just a goof. Nope:

"He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back.""

Make no mistake about it: we have a childish ideologue occupying the highest office in the land.

His not being very bright is just spice for the mix.

He's about out of my prayers. Even with two years of lame duck to go.

Economic Conservative
(76% permissive)

You are best described as a:

Required reading:

"These are good men who just happen to hold different beliefs. Like, for instance, you believe in free enterprise and unalienable rights, while they believe you should be their bitch."

Now that's some wisdom.

Jeff Goldstein has been a daily read for me since my earliest days on the web.

If you have ever witnessed or been a participant in an important public event and then found the subsequent reportage to be not quite on the mark... then you might consider following Mr. Goldstein around, too.

Language, intent, control, and what tomorrow may look like. Depending on who controls who gets to think and what they think, of course.

Have You Noticed?

Reloading powders are suddenly very expensive. Or maybe I just noticed. I knew that black powder was already way past silly as far as cost goes.

I'm in the middle of working up some Mosin food, using projectiles pulled from some truly horrible Pakistani production milsurp .303. I have arrived at the end of an inherited can of H4895 and went out to pick up another pound and found they wanted $25.00.

The election hasn't even been stolen yet. Sheesh.

A wee bit of vaporing, that. Premature, presumptive, and preternaturally fantastic.

As in fantasy.

One term. And nobody associated with this administration is going anywhere a majority of citizens supports them.
